GreenWaste Recovery Opens Single Stream Recycling System

Materials recovery facility (MRF) to process in excess of 40 tons per hour

San Jose, CA – July 8, 2015 – GreenWaste Recovery has opened a new state-of-the-art materials recovery facility (MRF) at the company’s San Jose facility. The MRF was designed, manufactured and installed by Eugene, Oregon-based Bulk Handling Systems (BHS), and will process both commercial and residential Single Stream recyclables at rates in excess of 40 tons per hour (tph).

The new system significantly expands the company’s processing capabilities; utilizing BHS screen, Nihot air and NRT optical technologies to maximize diversion. The system was designed for flexibility and is able to process a wide range of material streams, recovering more than 95% of available commodities such as plastics, metals, cardboard, paper and glass.

“GreenWaste Recovery is dedicated to minimizing the amount of waste sent to landfill,” said GreenWaste Recovery COO Frank Weigel. “By investing in the best technology available we are able to stay at the forefront of recycling; we are able to capture a very high percentage of incoming materials that will be used to create new products,” Weigel went on. “This system is another step forward as we continue to increase landfill diversion rates, striving towards a goal of zero waste.”

The technology package includes a BHS Bag Breaker® to open bags from commercial sources without damaging commodities, a Nihot Single Drum Separator to recover glass, BHS’ 144” wide adjustable-angle screens with rear access, and NRT Pet Boost® to maximize the recovery of wet and thin-walled PET plastics. The system is also designed to recover plastic bags using air and anti-wrap screen technologies. “Glass and plastic bags have been troublesome for some operators to process,” said BHS CEO Steve Miller. “With this equipment, GreenWaste Recovery will be able to capture these materials at high volumes and uptime for years to come,” Miller continued. “GreenWaste Recovery’s ability to seamlessly process this material is a testament to the company’s commitment to recovery.”
